Abstract

The use of blue light of high intensity in dentistry to activate polymerization of resin restorative materials was analyzed. Intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) were estimated using dihydrofluorescein diacetate (HFLUOR-DA), a vital fluorescein-based redox sensitive dye. It was found that if the biological effects of blue light are redox-mediated, antioxidants might be used to mitigate unwanted side effects of blue light during clinical use. Dose-dependent ROS levels were generated in NHEK and OSC2 cells. It was also found that both vitamin E and NAC significantly reduced blue-light-induced levels of ROS, and were more effective in the OSC2 cells.
